Mesopotamian Myth and Ritual Revisited

The entanglement of myth and ritual is a fraught topic in the history of religion, with intense debate on how to interpret the parallels, intersections, and disjunctions of religious narratives and behaviors in various ancient contexts. This lecture evaluates the cuneiform evidence from Assyria and Babylonia (present-day Iraq) in light of these debates with a particular interest in ancient Mesopotamian scholars‘ engagement with the myth-ritual nexus in both public, state-sponsored rituals and more intimate rituals aimed at knowledge production.
